Titans Beat Elmira In Come From Behind Win
For the first time since October, the Trenton Titans won two games in a row as they defeated the Elmira Jackals in dramatic come from behind fashion by a 5-4 score.
The first period was an even defensive matchup as neither team took many chances and goalies Scott Wedgewood, Trenton and Marc Cheverie, Elmira, stopped all pucks they faced.
Early in the second, Jacob Drewiske put the Titans on the board with a goal on his own rebound only to have the score quickly tied by Kevin Harvey of Elmira.

Ten minutes later, the Jackals would take the lead on Justin Daniels’s first goal of the season but Marcel Noebels would tie it with a late powerplay tally.
Artem Demkov tallied a rebound goal off a Rob Bellamy shot after Titans Defender Connor Goggin made an ill-timed pass through center that Bellamy picked off.
Luckily for the Titans, Ryan Grimshaw quickly tied the game with a slapshot from the slot.
The wheels almost fell off the Titans late as Louie Caporusso beat Wedgewood five hole on a broken play. However, unlike the Titans of last season, the 2012-13 Titans kept coming back.
With less than four minutes to play, newcomer Phil DeSimone would tie the game in his Titans debut.
Less than a minute later, Captain Andy Bohmbach scored the game winning goal and the Titans won 5-4.
Bohmbach admitted he wasn’t sure of where he was shooting.
“Just kinda blindly shot it to where I thought the goalie wouldn’t be,” the Captain said.
With the bounces heading their way, the Titans head out to Indiana for a game in Evansvillle and another game in Fort Wayne before the Christmas break.
